Info Session: Multimedia Reporting Course in Italy, Summer 2018 (3 credits)
Pizza provided! Informational Meeting with Prof. Adornato and alumni of the course
Course dates: May 25 - June 22, 2018
What's it like to report in a foreign country? Build your portfolio of work and expand your digital storytelling skills all while immersed in Italian life and culture. In the summer of 2018, I'll be teaching a four-week multimedia journalism course in Urbino, Italy. The program is part of the Institute for Education in International Media (ieiMedia), which focuses on study abroad opportunities for communications students. The course is open to journalism and non-journalism majors.
Working with a team of award-winning journalists, you'll get a taste of being a foreign correspondent. A Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and former White House photographer are among the faculty who teach as part of the Urbino program. Students will study photography, international reporting, and video, and will produce a website about the people, places, and culture of the region. Students live at the University of Urbino and collaborate with Urbino students who serve as interpreters in the field.
ABOUT URBINO: Urbino is a picturesque Renaissance hill town and the jewel of the Marche region of central Italy. Although Urbino was a Roman and medieval city, its peak came during the 15th century when Duke Federico da Montefeltro established one of Europe’s most illustrious courts. Urbino’s historic center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Urbino is relatively small and off the beaten path of tourists, yet it’s a hip college town with one of the oldest universities in Italy.
